The growing Trend in Fitness VacationsFrom Arizona to Maine, more than 100 spas provide a great escape into health, relaxation, physical activities, good nutrition, and just plain fun.

No two spas are alike in the fast-growning industry. Thanks to this carefully researched and personalized guide, however, you can find the spa that best fits your needs and your budget, be it a secluded resort where you can soak up the sun or a sumptuous spa where the focus is on exercise and eating habits. In addition, tips and hints on what to expect once you get there give you a head start on your best vacation ever.

before you go, remember that:

Spas are for the fit and the not-so-fit
Spas are for the trim and those in need of trimming
Spas are for those who want to be pampered and those who don’t
Spas are for the fashion=conscious and the down-to-earth
Spas are for singles, couples, and groups
